Apple recently released iOS 13.7 to the public after a brief beta process. The update does not make major changes, although the addition of COVID-19 tracks and tracking features without the need for an app may prove to be important.
No matter what we wanted to know how well this update performs in terms of battery life. Does it drain batteries quickly, or does it treat them with respect?
As always, there is something iAppleBytes would also find out. And YouTube has the answer.
By taking an iPhone SE, iPhone 6S, iPhone 7, iPhone 8, iPhone XR, iPhone 11 and 2020 iPhone SE, iAppleBytes was able to run Geekbench’s battery test to see how things shook. Put your bets now!
This video was recorded 3 days after iOS 13.7 was installed, so it had time to settle down. I have seen many comments that it takes about a week for battery performance to optimize it even after an iOS update. I have always been skeptical of this statement, since I have never personally had a bad battery life right after I updated. If I restore and download backup from iCloud, then that’s a different story. So I decided to run the battery test 3 days after updating them. During the three days, they only idled with power connected. So let’s run the battery test again, and see if we get any different results this time.
The results were quite positive for older units, and less for the newer ones. That said, the differences were not what some would call huge, and it’s always up for debate how these things actually reflect real use. Still, it’s always good to get a reference, right?
